Shhushed

Director: Mandisa Pantin
2011, Trinidad+Tobago
English
Narrative short 17 minutes

 

When little Chloe abruptly stops speaking, her mother and grandmother are puzzled. Psychiatry and the supernatural are called into play, yet the truth of the matter is far greater—and more obvious—than either woman suspects. This is a powerful film about the dangerous consequences of silence.
